First i would like to thank all those who already answered my queries in previous posts. I'm about to by a new workstation just to increase the After Effects performance. Please help me find the best hardware configuration possible for AE CS3.
I'm stuck between these three:
i7 Xtreme Edition
SINGLE XEON Xtreme Edition X5600 series.
If i go by CPU benchmarks then i7-920 2.67 Ghz outperforms XEON E5500 series. I'm comparing them as they come in same price range.
Can u tell me if AE prefers DUAL XEON over Single CPU when it comes to rendering & building previews.? Is there any advantage in going with DUAL CPUs ?
